INFORMATION COLLECTED BY US AND ITS USE
You may choose to provide personal information through this Website, in our stores or through our customer service line. Personal information is collected online when users voluntarily register with this Website to purchase items, receive electronic newsletters, use community and communication services, answer surveys and enter contests and other promotional opportunities provided for and when users utilize the "Email to a Friend" feature. We also maintain a record of your product interests and purchases online.
We may collect two types of information when you purchase products and gift cards about users: "Personal Information" (such as name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and payment card information) and "Aggregate Information" (such information is non-personally identifiable information about you, such as age, gender, types of products purchased, frequency of Store visits, Website pages you access most frequently or search terms you enter. Aggregate Information is used in a collective manner, and no single person can be identified by that compiled information). In addition to the ways we collect information about you described above, we also may obtain information about you from third parties. We may use your Personal Information to provide you with products or services you request (such as tailoring services or merchandise returns), enhance your shopping experience and communicate with you about our products, services and promotions. In addition, we may use your personal information for internal purposes, such as prevention of fraud and theft, accident reporting, development and administration of our sites and stores, data analytics, and compliance with our legal obligations, policies and procedures.
Further we obtain certain information by automated means when you visit our Website, such as the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet and the pages accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors and understand what products and services you might prefer. We collect this information through various means, such as "cookies" and "web beacons."

We also retain service providers who use web beacons to assess the effectiveness of our email communications and learn what pages our visitors viewed.
We use customer information in an effort to improve your shopping experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, promotions and contests.
